On his third day as commandant, Krulak met with a team of psychologists and psychiatrists who told him that what "Generation X and Generation Next" really wanted was a tough task that they could take pride in - in short, a challenge.
So Krulak pulled all existing commercials off the air and replaced them with the current series, whose message, he said, is: "If you want to be challenged physically, mentally, and morally join the Marines.
But Krulak says that's "just a red herring." He notes that the corps recruits 40,000 young people a year, not that many fewer than the 50,000 required each year by the Navy, which is more than double the size.

 Gen Krulak
During the QandA, Krulak came out and said that every one of the Joint Chiefs, in private, agreed with a 'no mixed-gender' basic training policy but none were willing to stand up to their civilian bosses to defend their professional military judgment-sad.
During the QandA session, GEN Krulak also expressed dismay that not a single member of the Joint Chiefs publicly defended the Constitution over the issue of whether or not a prominent political figure would 'make his views on homosexuals serving openly in the military' a 'litmus test' for the next Chairman of the Joint Chiefs.
When this kind of stuff starts becoming public, either by a book, speeches, articles, or other means, GEN Krulak's view is going to start taking hold with the 'grass roots' and we'll be surprised at how fast he will start picking up steam for his position.
